John-Paul is passionately committed to the effective representation of his clients; his success proves this. He is successful because he has the intellect to persuasively apply complex laws, rules, and regulations to differing and equally complex facts for each client; a skill every lawyer wants and John-Paul has. I endorse him and his work based on these skills and his honest compassion for his clients.
